Puts a New Spin on Kids Fitness Revolutionary Hoop Dance DVD Premiers October 20
[October 14, 2013: ST PETERSBURG, FL]: MOLLY AND THE HOOLA MONSTERS, a children’s hula hooping adventure and instructional DVD, premiers October 20 at Sunken Gardens (1825 4th Street North, St. Petersburg). This free, family-friendly event takes place from noon to 2 p.m. and includes: the DVD screening, a meet-and-greet with cast members, debut performance by the Mini Monsters Squad (kids’ hoop troupe), along with games and activities hosted by nationally acclaimed hoop fitness instructor and MOLLY AND THE HOOLA MONSTERS co-creator, Abby Albaum.
“The goal of the DVD is to instill a message of self-confidence and fun fitness through the art of hoop dance,” said Albaum. “Hooping with pro dance hoops burns an average of 420 calories an hour, so not only is it a ton of fun, it’s also the perfect way to keep kids active and healthy.”
In the making for more than two years, MOLLY AND THE HOOLA MONSTERS follows the story of Molly – the new kid at school – who discovers a golden tunnel that transports her to Hoolaville… a vibrant, funky village filled with super hooping creatures called Hoola Monsters. With each Hoola Monster that Molly meets, she builds her self-confidence and skills set.
MOLLY AND THE HOOLA MONSTERS includes bonus tutorials and original, dance-along music by Orlando-based funk band, Beebs and Her Moneymakers. The DVD also features 3-D artwork by Tampa visual artist, Bean Spence. Signature hoops in the MOLLY AND THE HOOLA MONSTERS line and DVDs are sold separately for $24.99 or as a hoop/ DVD package for $39.99 and will be available for purchase at the event. Starting October 20, the DVD and signature hoops will be available online at hoolamonsterkids.com.
